Five - “Driving Autonomy”

Five.AI is a European leader developing software for self-driving vehicles. We believe in a world where transport will be safe, green and available to all, where we are free to pursue our dreams without needing to drive!

Developing these systems is complex and often a slow and inefficient process. As a team of roboticists, computer scientists and mathematicians who have extensive first-hand experience of building these systems, we’re convinced there is a better way. We’re focused about building that approach into a platform that empowers developers and industry to build demonstrably safe self-driving systems.

With experienced founders, world-class scientists and professor supervision, our team is accelerating advanced research learning and applying it in the real world.

About the Team

Our Python Developers work cross functionally with multiple teams across our platform, to provide the core infrastructure and functionality. For example, you could be working on efficient evaluation metrics for deciding whether a system under test passed or failed. You could be contributing to the infrastructure to run large test suites in parallel and collate the resulting data and results, through to frontend dashboards to view results, or databases, and much more.
